Sounds a little redundant with ol (ordered list). Also sounds needlessly 
confusing and hard to explain. I'm not sure we really need dialog, but 
at least it's simple and obvious to explain to people what it means. The 
more abstract and generic we get the harder this becomes. Concreteness 
is underrated among software developers, but widely appreciated by other 
users.
